The egcs people came up with the appended fix. The log message is
* combine.c (get_last_value): Don't look for earlier sets if the last
known set is somewhere in between the insns being combined.
Just tried - it makes the test program work correctly on i386 and mipsel.
Should it be applied to our tree (and perhaps to the release branch(es))?
